Owens is awarded the Silver Star and Purple Heart 68 years after his heroic actions while fighting near Ludwigshafen, Germany. On March 23, 1945, Owens' tank was hit by a shell from an anti-tank gun.  After evacuating the vehicle, he returned twice under heavy enemy fire - and despite his wounds - to rescue injured comrades. After a review of his records, Secretary of the Army John McHugh recently signed orders to recognize Owens. Brig. Gen.
